In surprise ceremony, Obama awards Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom

President Obama bestowed the nation’s highest civilian honor on Vice President Biden Thursday, calling his running mate and presidential understudy “the best vice president America has ever had.”

The surprise State Room ceremony was alternately humorous and poignant, with Biden turning his face from the audience to wipe away his tears.

“I had no inkling,” Biden said, saying he thought the event was supposed to be for first lady Michelle Obama. He jokingly fired his chief of staff for not telling him. “I don’t deserve this, but I know this came from the president’s heart.”

Only two other vice presidents have received the honor. President Gerald Ford awarded it to his vice president, Nelson Rockefeller, in 1977, and President Jimmy Carter awarded it to Lyndon Johnson’s vice president, Hubert Humphrey, in 1980.

But Biden’s medal also came with an additional rare honor: The Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction. That additional designation has been bestowed to only three others: Pope John Paul II, President Ronald Reagan and former secretary of State Colin Powell.

I’ve seen other theories about humans who mirror Gems like the Cool Kids mirror the Crystal Gems, so here are my thoughts on possible Jamie and Lapis parallels.

In “Historical Friction”, Jamie and Steven put on a historical play about the founding of Beach City. Jamie had to act for most of the parts, so in a way he had to “mimic” the Crystal Gems. He even says a line similar to one said by Garnet in “Love Letters” (X). Mimicry is one of Lapis’ abilities shown in “Mirror Gem” and “Ocean Gem”. The mirror she was trapped in was also meant to show historical events it witnessed by command.

Jamie plays First Mate Buddy in the play. Steven called Mirror!Lapis his “beach-summer-fun-buddy”.

In “Love Letters” and the second intro, Jamie is seen forlornly sitting on the beach, facing the ocean. Lapis sits in a similar manner in her cell in “Jail Break”.

Jamie is a mail carrier. In “The Message” Lapis sends Steven a message received through their wailing stone.

Offshoot theory time: Thinking about that last one has actually made me realize that a Gem mail carrier is a fitting role for Lapis. Her wings help her to travel long distances and her ability to mimic voices would allow her to accurately repeat back messages. Also, there would be some nice symbolism with her angelic appearance as angels are known as God’s messengers (the word angel literally means “messenger”).

“No tale is more compelling than one that never ends” - this quote was written by Mitsurou Kubo as a memo after she watched Tatsuki Machida’s free skate at the Japanese Nationals on December 27, 2014. Two years later, she included the same quote in the final episode of Yuri on Ice, as part of Yuuri Katsuki’s inner monologues. 

Original tweet here: “I wrote this memo with a shaky hand after watching Macchi’s program.”

*Macchi is Tatsuki’s nickname; his friends, team mates and fans all call him that

*Mitsurou Kubo wrote this memo the day before he retired, still oblivious to what was about to happen. 

*Thank you @polmusag3 for pointing it out! 

My Mate (Master Post)

Summary: Did you know angels need mates?  Yea, like angelic married…mates.  And sometimes, this heat-like phase takes over where they have to mate, like their biological clock starts ticking.  Well, that is what has happened, and that is how Lucifer wound up in the bunker, his grace fading as he calls out for a mate.  Luckily, the Winchesters are friends with a hunter who is willing to help out.

Sirius Black - Brave and Mighty

Originally posted by potter-imagines-here

You two began noticing each other in your fifth year. You had always been a quiet friend of Lily’s who Sirius very much overlooked. It was only when Lily and James began really talking that the two of you hit it off. 
“So,” Sirius began, “what house are you in.” 
“I’m a (your house name) through and through.” 
Sirius smiled. “I am, of course, a Gryffindor home of the brave and mighty, like myself.” 

“Oi mate,” Remus called from his nook in the corner. “Didn’t you get startled by the bin this morning?”
Sirius looked at you dead in the eye. “Very scary bin.” 
You laughed. The two of you talked for quite a while before families got brought up. Sirius’s face clearly fell and you tried to change the subject, but the damage was done. 

“I’m from a Pureblood family,” Sirius stated, fiddling his fingers. “I’m currently living with James and his parents, though. They adopted me, really. Nicest parents I’ve ever met.” 
“Well,” you began. “I’m a muggleborn, so my parents initially threw away my Hogwarts letter, thinking it was junk mail.” 
“What happened, I mean, you’re obviously here.” 
“Well, the letters kept arriving and they wrote back and then Dumbledore showed up and bam, I’m here now.”
“It must be nice to have parents who don’t care about blood type.” 
“They’re really nice. Maybe you could meet them sometime over the summer?” you asked. 
“It’s a little early to be introducing me to the family, isn’t it (y/l/n)?”

A book closed and Remus came over, whispered something in Sirius’s ear, shot you a wink, and then departed like nothing had happened. You didn’t have time to question what had just happened before Sirius pulled your head up to his and kissed you. You wrapped your arms around his neck and began to kiss him back. After this went on for some time, the both of you came up for breath. 

“See, brave and mighty,” Sirius said with a wink. 

Sherlock already feels sad about John saying “Colleague” instead of friend and his old “mate” called him a freak and said that everyone hated him he just wants someone to be nice to him today.

Sleeping safe and sound (Alec Volturi x Reader)

Alec watched as his mate slept. His mate. He never suspected he’d ever call a human that. Yet there you were. Sleeping soundly on the couch. You were a restless sleeper and this is the most relaxed you had been.

Alec sat beside you, brushing your hair away from your face. Your intoxicating scent filled his nostrils. He knew then, whether he liked it or not.

He would love you forever.

Chapter 12

The drive back had been quiet…for the most part.

“I don’t know why you are so angry.”  Riley said with a seething controlled anger.  She was really starting to get fed up with Sam and his damn attitude. It was obvious the boys didn’t trust her anymore, but now it seemed like everything she did was causing a fight. At least Dean kept his mouth shut most of the time, but Sam…Sam was beating a dead horse…

“He could have hurt them.”  Sam bounced back quickly, referring to the boy and girl from the night before.

“Whatever, Sam. He wouldn’t hurt them and you know it.” Riley was quick to reach into her back and pull out her headphones, essentially shutting off all conversation. She softly nodded her head as if she were listening to music…but there was no sound coming through the headphones. It was a ploy to end the argument. But after what she heard next, she wished she had put on music.

“Dean…”

“I know. But what do you want me to do?”  

“We can’t let her keep getting closer to Lucifer, what are we going to do?  It’s going to change her.”  Sam said in a worried tone.

Worried or not…their words were killing her.  It was in that moment she had the thought for the first time…maybe she should just leave. Maybe it would be better if she just, wasn’t here.  She took a deep breath as she looked out the window.  There was something…in the window…what was-

“HOLY SHIT!” She screamed as she whipped her head around.  “DAMN IT, LUCIFER!”  She put her hand up on her chest as she tried to control her breathing as the boys gave some snide comments about the devil just popping in.

All Slows Down

Sooo… I wrote this short little fluffy piece today because I needed to get out of my head. I hope you like it; it made me smile =)


“Nesta! Ew gross, Nesta!” Cassien called for his mate loudly. His voice echoed through their cottage. Nesta heard him all the way in the living room, where she was cleaning up baby toys and praying for nap time. She was exhausted. She was always tired by afternoon. She never realized how much energy it took to raise a child.

Cassian scrunched up his nose as his son wiggled his legs.

Nesta dropped everything in her hands when she heard him. She felt his panic through their bond, inside her chest. She didn’t think, she ran into the room afraid something was wrong. Afraid something had happened to their child. She pushed the door open, her eyes were huge.

Max laughed as she looked at her husband, “what happened Cass?”

“He peed on me!”

Chapter 22 

Lucifer didn’t want to wake Riley.  She had quite a day.  Instead, he just took up sitting next to her on the bed, Dean’s words running through his mind.  You love her, and she loves you, it ain’t that complicated.  Lucifer had always wondered why…why did you agree to mate him?  Was it out of pity, was it out of friendship, but if what Dean said was true then it was something different entirely.

Riley shifted and took a quick intake of breath.  Her eyes were still closed as her limbs started to move.  She let out a little whine before her eyes flew open and she snapped up from the bed, gasping for air.  

“Riley?”  He asked softly, but not softly enough.  It spooked her.  She let out a small squeal as her head snapped around, but she relaxed when her eyes landed on Lucifer.  She shut her eyes and let out a soft sigh.  “You’re safe.”  He said softly.  He wrapped his arm around her, letting her curl up into his chest as he whispered soft phrases in enochian.  It was almost cowardly.  All the things he wanted to say, he was saying, but he knew she didn’t understand.
